THE UNFORGOTTEN BY LAURA POWELL, AUDIOFILE MAGAZINE
Narrator Katy Sobey has a delightful British accent and a delivery that ranges from clipped to languid as the characters and pace of the text demand. Her breathy musings capture the insecurity Betty feels as forbidden love and a vow of silence lead to secrets and a burden of guilt that darken the rest of her life. Sobey skillfully guides listeners through fifty-year time jumps and multiple character shifts as the the effects of those grisly crimes play out to an unexpected resolution.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, UK TOUR
“The production… certainly makes space for one or two shining performances, notably from Kate Craggs and Katy Sobey, as the two young female lovers, Hermia and Helena;”
Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman
THE INDIAN DOCTOR, BBC 1
This is just a very brief note to thank you for your gem of a contribution to The Indian Doctor this summer. Your charmingly predatory reporter was a perfectly observed and deliciously entertaining treat, and the consummate ease with which you played her was a joy to behold.
